his face. >> two of our players want to meet you here. >> hey, how is it going? >> chance to meet them, to get his own autographed signed jersey and other goodness sport filled with wins and losses, today, was a win-win. >> it is awesome. i mean, good to have him in here, smiling, ear to ear, just giving him his jersey. he really lovers his jerry? but the other flyers stuff won't be in mark's house for long. that's to understand mark smith. make it harder to understand, why anyone would hurt him. >> the thing that caught me off guard the most was how he said right away, he didn't want any of the stuff. he wanted to give it to little kids, make them just as happy as he was today. i think that really struck me inside. >> great story there, the orange and black. we've got a problem on route 55 in south jersey. northbound lane every route 55, closed at the vineland interchange, all because after nasty fatal accident that happened on the overnight.
if we have the video, we can roll t it is an overturned dump truck that route 55 northbound just north of exit number 35, between exit 35 vineland, and route 40. so that stretch there is closed where the accident occurred, all traffic being forced off at the vineland interchange, and from there, you can use route 47 to reconnect. looks like it will be out there for most of the morning rush hour. another accident, main street at maple avenue. here is a live look at this accident scene, again, police blocking main street at maple in harleysville. watch for some local detours this morning, double bubble today. we got phillies playing an afternoon game at 1:05, then john legends across the river in camden tonight, at 8:00. so, both of those events are going to throw a lot of extra volume in what would normally be an afternoon and evening rush hour. so just be prepared for that. one more day of this 495 project, crews down in del
dot, repairing the expansion joint along 495. so only one lane is open at exit number three. if you are headed into wilmington today, you want to use i-95 through the rush hour. the turnpike crews still working out couple of spots, ft. washington, valley forge, also working on the northeast extension near lansdale. how hot is it going to get? the sun coming back out today? sue has the answer in 15 seconds. >> they call it the business person's special, it is the phillies and cardinals this afternoon, maybe they'll salvage the last game of the series, today, starts at 1:00, and the important thing to remember, if do you have ticket to the game today, is bring your sunscreen, it will be very warm, we will be at 85 by game time, and that's at 1:00. so we will top off at
90 degrees, and that will happen during the game. we've got tropical storm cindy just about ready to make landfall, in southern louisianna, you see the circulation around the eye of the storm. but the outer bands, produce ago lot of rain to the south of us, for us, right now, just a couple of pop up showers with very weak system, that's nearby, that is expected to dissipate pretty soon. but around evesham, you may see little sprinkle or two this morning, as far as the future cast is concerned, we see some rain rolling in late tonight into tomorrow. some of this is associated by friday afternoon into saturday. some of this is associated with remnants of tropical storm cindy, which by saturday will be close enough to kind of hook up with a system that was going to come through in the morning anyway. but it, does look like by saturday, it is only morning rain, and that it clears out by the afternoon. that's the way it is looking so far anyway. 70 degrees in philadelphia, right now, 49 mount pocono, 63
